Sanergy is looking for a qualified Lab Analyst to join our Quality Health Safety and Environment team.
Who we are: Sanergy is an award-winning social venture that builds healthy, prosperous communities by making safe sanitation accessible and affordable in Africa’s urban informal settlements.
Our systems-based approach to solving the sanitation crisis involves 3 critical steps: we build a dense network of high-quality sanitation facilities — Fresh Life Toilets — franchised to residents in the community.
We collect the waste regularly and safely remove it from the community. Finally, we convert the waste into valuable agricultural inputs, which we sell to Kenyan farmers. Our most innovative product is a protein rich animal feed from Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL).
We are currently scaling up our processing facility to increase and optimize our production of animal feed. This scale up includes the construction and startup of a production facility to produce 300 tons of animal feed per month.
This facility will be the first greenfield insect animal feed production facility from insect waste in Africa – a unique opportunity!
